Taken at Ornamental Lake Southampton Common a couple of weeks ago. Not much to photograph at the moment the weather is very dull and drab.
Have a good day and thanks for your time.

This is delicious, Sue! The tones, the composition, the really lovely light, the almost tunnel effect of the reeds dipping their heads into the picture from right and left, all contribute to a strongly nostalgic atmosphere of the emerging warmth of spring.
A couple of little niggles, if you don't mind: there are a few tiny specks of lighter tone at the top right edge, and a lighter patch of intrusive reeds on the left, that could easily be removed or toned to match the rest. But that's me being very finicky, as you have produced almost the ideal photograph - I love it!
Regards
Bill
